These were one of my favorites growing up and amazingly still are.
1 cup soft unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups cake flour
1 cup lightly toasted sliced almonds
10 ounces milk chocolate candy bar
Cream butter and sugars. Add yolk & vanilla. Add flour. Mix well and spread thinly on a cookie sheet with sides. Bake at 350* for 15-20 minutes. Melt chocolate over hot water. Spread on warm cookies as soon as they are out of the oven. Sprinkle with almonds. Cut while still warm but chocolate is set.
Most of the time I forget to cut them when they are still warm and the chocolate is set. Then I just break them up into about 1″ pieces that are misshappen. They look very nice in a tin. So good and perfect for the holidays. enjoy
